The Jets will be playing their second straight national TV game when they visit the Broncos in Denver on the NFL Network’s Thursday Night Football.
For the dwindling viewers without cable or satellite, WPIX/Channel 11 is the over-the-air option for Jets fans.
The 8 p.m. game features NFL Network announcers Brad Nessler and Mike Mayock.
Ahead of the broadcast, WPIX offers unique programming–a 60-minute pre-game show, PIX11: Countdown to Kick-Off.
WPIX, short on a sports staff, has reporter Mario Diaz joining former Jets linebacker Chad Cascadden from the Channel 11 studios. Dyrol Joyner will be live from Denver. The pre-game show also includes Monica Morales with Fireman Ed and Jet faithful at Bowlmore Lanes in Times Square.
Additionally, the audience is invited to live tweet during the special using #PIX11Pregame for a chance to have the tweet posted on air.
Post-game reaction will take place during a late edition of PIX News at Ten with Jodi Applegate.
